The Weisblatt Law Firm, PLLC is fully operational both onsite and remotely to serve all our current and new clients’ legal needs. We are fully compliant with all COVID-19 required and recommended policies. All of our staff and employees are working from home.
THE COURTS: The Courts are “semi” open. The Supreme Court of the State of Texas has not issued a blanket ruling directing the courts. Because of this, each court literally is making its own decisions on what matters will be heard. In Harris County, there are no jury trials right now. The same is true for Fort Bend County. Each court is deciding what matters to hear and how to hear them. Some courts have telephone dockets, some have reduced in person dockets, and some are doing telephone calls. We are monitoring this situation very closely and on a daily basis. If you have something coming up, we will give you instructions in advance what you should do.
THE BOTTOM LINE: We take this situation very seriously. We want and intend to be part of the solution. This problem will resolve eventually. In the meantime, we are all working hard and we are well positioned to continue to provide the high quality, timely, legal services to which you are accustomed.
Please contact me if you have any questions. As always, the main switchboard number is 713-666-1981 and it is always answered by a live person. Thank you for your confidence in us and we sincerely hope that each and every one of you is healthy and safe.
